Sig Sauer 556 Meets Gears of War

Or perhaps it’s the other way around? The first time I saw a Sig Sauer 556 on the wall of one of my local gun shops (they actually had a few of them) I couldn’t help but think how badass it looked and how much it looked like something out of a movie or video game.

After a very brief internet search it looks like the Sig Sauer 556 lineup was introduced at the 2006 SHOT Show. Gears of War also made its appearance in 2006.


Is this a random coincident? Is this a chicken or the egg conundrum? Do they look nothing alike and I’m seeking connections that aren’t there? Does anyone have one and wants to let me shoot it?
